If you came here through the Think Tank Adventure page:
If you just stumbled across this or are a subscriber to my blog, let me add some detail: On April 24, 2012, we’re co-hosting a Pop Up Think Tank on Families, Innovation and Storytelling with Pitcairn.
We’ve designed a small, highly participative conversation, enhanced by two thought catalysts, Greg Brandeau, Chief Technology Officer of Pixar/Disney, and Frank Rose, author of The Art of Immersion. Watch the clip below to see Rose talking about the changing face of storytelling and memory at the TED Conference.
Rose turns storytelling on its head when he says:
“The role of the broadcaster is not just to speak, but to listen. The role of the audience is not just to listen, but to speak.”
This interactive invitation process is taking Frank’s observation to heart. Instead of just telling you what we plan to do, we’re involving you by asking you to solve little riddles and share your information and ideas. The most recent riddle was a rebus—a pictographic puzzle that spells out a phrase. The one above spells “You’re clever.”
If you haven’t been involved up to this point, join in the fun by backtracking and completing the three preceding challenges here.
The rebus was just the first part of this week’s challenge. The second part is this: Please tell me:
- three of your best qualities (e.g. funny, warm, great cook)
- one of the best qualities of your family (e.g. down to earth)
